Tottenham showed their prowess in Group H, forcing #Real Madrid into a draw at Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night, according to the Guardian. Harry Kane's witty move forced Madrid center back Raphael Varane to divert Serge Aurier's long cross into his own net to put Spurs in front in the 28th minute. The goal marked the Spurs' first goal against Real Madrid in four meetings. Two minutes left before half-time, #Cristiano Ronaldo struck home the equalizer to put his side back in the contest and ultimately extended his tally as the leading scorer in Champions League history. Afterward, both teams enjoyed equal possession and attempts, but they never found a way out to double the scoreline, and they eventually settled for a stalemate at full-time.
